Tese diamond discs aren't mine, they are from someone I borrowed. The person gave me 8 diamond discs. However, I only transferred 7 of the discs, because one of the discs did not sound listenable at all. 2 of the discs have only 1 side transferred. That's because it was either a bad side or I couldn't make it sound listenable. Enjoy! :) Topics: Thomas Edison, Records, Diamond Discs

The phonograph was invented in 1877 by Thomas Edison. While other inventors had produced devices that could record sounds, Edison's phonograph was the first to be able to reproduce the recorded sound. His phonograph originally recorded sound onto a tinfoil sheet phonograph cylinder, and could both record and reproduce sounds. Alexander Graham Bell's Volta Laboratory made several improvements in the 1880s, including the use of wax-coated cardboard cylinders, and a cutting stylus that moved from...
